DataON S2D-3000 Family of Hyper-Converged Cluster Appliances


Built upon the DataON ClusterBlock Architecture (CBA), the S2D-3000 family of hyper-converged cluster appliances (HCCA) provides scale-out and scale-up infrastructure and management services for deploying Microsoft Windows Server 2016. The DataON HCCAs incorporate core software-defined services for compute, networking and storage specified by Microsoft Storage Spaces Direct (S2D) to build their next generation software-defined data centers (SDDC).

The S2D-3000 family of HCCAs is built and certified by Microsoft to seamlessly deploy with Microsoft Windows Server 2016. It is designed on three core principles of scale-out hyper-converged cluster, integrated software-defined services and complete visibility and management of the storage infrastructure. It is also comprised of solutions that are performance and I/O optimized, balanced for IOPS, and density, and capacity optimized for the delivery of core Microsoft services and enterprise applications.




  • Performance - All-flash NVMe SSDs archieving 2.4M IOPS in 4-node cluster
  • Virtualization - Support 40+ Hyper-V VM's per nodes, with up to 16 nodes per cluster
  • Scalability - Delivers compute, networking and storage resources with near-linear scalability
  • Simplicity - Simple out-of-the-box deployment and easy installation
  • Management - DataON MUST infrastructure visibility and management software

Optimized for Performance, Density, & Capacity with Windows Server 2016 Storage Spaces Direct

The DataON S2D-3000 family of HCCAs is built to optimize the full stack of Microsoft S2D in a hyper-converged platform. From scale-out file server (SoFS) and software storage bus to storage and networking hardware, this appliance runs on the cluster Shared Volumes Resilient file system (ReFS) and uses high performance NVMe SSDs with SMB 3.0 networking to maximize performance and capacity. The integrated S2D HCCA platform and DataON MUST (management utility software tools) visibility and management framework delivers:

  • Preconfigured 4-node HCCA Clusters - Expanded performance and capacity with scalability and operational flexibility.
  • Industry-Leading Application Performance - The HCCA with four cluster nodes is capable of providing over 2.4 million IOPS (running VM Fleet) using the latest all-flash Intel NVMe-based SSD technology to scale IOPS intensive workloads.
  • Maximum Capacity Utilization - The capacity optimized HCCA with four cluster nodes is capable of providing over 150TB of usable capacity using the latest Intel NVMe- based SSD technology and SAS capacity drive to process enterprise applications and Hyper-V workloads.
  • Hyper-V Virtualization Hosting - Each HCCA can support more than 40 Hyper-V virtual machines per node, with up to 16 nodes per cluster.
  • Storage and Networking with SMB 3.0 over RDMA - Delivers the highest throughput, lowest latency and increases CPU efficiency.
  • Hyper-Converged Scalability - Incremental compute, networking, and storage resources provides near-linear scalability. Each HCCA can also be expanded in capacity via 12GB SAS JBODs for further storage expansion.
  • Automated Deployment - Automated out-of-box workflows accelerate time to deployment for Windows Server 2016, Storage Spaces Direct, and Storage Replica environments.
  • Integrated Data Protection and Guarded Fabric - Fully supports Windows Server 2016 with Shielded VM and TPM 2.0 trusted attestation for security and business continuity.

Your current web browser must be updated to version 7 of Internet Explorer (IE7) to take advantage of all of template's capabilities.

Why should I upgrade to Internet Explorer 7? Microsoft has redesigned Internet Explorer from the ground up, with better security, new capabilities, and a whole new interface. Many changes resulted from the feedback of millions of users who tested prerelease versions of the new browser. The most compelling reason to upgrade is the improved security. The Internet of today is not the Internet of five years ago. There are dangers that simply didn't exist back in 2001, when Internet Explorer 6 was released to the world. Internet Explorer 7 makes surfing the web fundamentally safer by offering greater protection against viruses, spyware, and other online risks.
